Vincent J. Kane, age 68 of West Chester, PA, passed away peacefully on June 26, 2020 surrounded by his family at home. 


Born in Philadelphia and raised in S.W. Philadelphia, Vince resided in West Chester for the last five years, after living for 35 years in Garnet Valley, PA.    An engineer, Vince was the founder and owner of DCM Associates, an engineering firm, for over 20 years.  He retired in 2013.  He graduated from West Catholic High School in 1970 and earned his Bachelor's from Spring Garden College in 1974.  He was a longtime parishioner of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Glen Mills, and more recently, was a parishioner of St. Agnes in West Chester where he was a member of the parish’s men's group, The Kingsmen.  


Vince was authentically humble, indisputably intelligent, and unwaveringly faithful.  He lived to provide the best possible life for his wife and his daughters.  He worked hard to give them everything he could, while teaching them to be capable and independent.  He loved being on the water and spending time at his home in Sea Isle each summer.
